Course Description:

This course covers all of the basics – from how and why we should think about accessibility, through to auditing a site and making recommendations.

A major element of the day is practical: you will practice by analysing real websites for basic accessibility.

It’s fun, it’s interactive and you will meet interesting people to exchange ideas and experiences with!

Is It For You?

If you’re responsible for a website and want to get the best out of it whilst ensuring you are meeting legal and corporate social responsibility requirements then this course is for you.

Our Practical Accessibility course is also suitable for designers and content providers who are responsible for template design and contents. It is not code-heavy or technical (so no coding experience is necessary), but does introduce key concepts and best practices that will be useful to developers.
